We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with two friends. I was expecting something pretty ordinary based on website but was pleasantly surprised when we were personally shown to the rooms. Receptionist was super friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and there was no noise from surrounding accommodation. Would definitely stay here if we were in the area again.

We started our South Island tour with 4 nights at Ski Time. Our villa was so well equipped that we were inspired to cook every night (even after skiing all day), which meant we didn't get to try the restaurant (which we will rectify next time!). The villa was wonderfully warm and cosy; the DVD and games library were approved... More

The service in this place was tops. We were with a large group and every thing flowed nicely. We even got to watch the rugby. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for the delicious meal - it was mmmmmmm. We will be back and we will tell people.

We booked through Expedia and got a really good deal. The room was lovely, clean and warm, with fresh linen and a very comfortable bed, and an ensuite. The entire place was welcoming and we enjoyed a delicious contintental breakfast in the restaurant which was included - the views were amazing. We will definitely stay again 👍

We had a room to the side of the hotel which had lovely views of the mountains. It was a very peaceful location. Methven is quite a small town but is surrounded by beautiful scenery. We stayed for a couple of nights as a stop off and also to go to Mount Sunday (Lord of the Rings fans!), this was... More

This was a great place that we only stayed in for 1 night enroute to Mount Cook. Given how reasonable the rates are, we were surprised and delighted at the very high standard of the Lodge.We hadn't expected it to be so good. The web site really doesn't do it justice! Our room was large and very comfortable, the staff... More

The management, the staff and their service were very friendly and efficient , the villas and the food were excellent. If there was one fault, it was the internet service. Needs a bit of work, a few dead spots. Thoroughly reccommend it. Great Value.

Beautiful location and lovely rooms, clean and stocked with everything! Showers and beds were amazing. The lady at reception was really helpful and changed rooms for us when we realised we had booked the wrong apartment even though it must have been pretty annoying for her! Thanks
